From January 2019 onwards, all blog, Instagram and Twitter posts which contain anything I’ve been given discounted or free will begin with the hashtag #gifted
If I have been paid to advertise a product, I will use the hashtag #ad
I don’t use any affiliate links – any links in this blog are purely to show you the products I’m referring to for your sheer convenience.
Posts prior to January 2019 will usually refer to me being ‘invited to’ a restaurant, will make it clear that it was a menu launch/preview event or that I was sent a product. Disclosure will be clearer from now on to comply with ASA regulations.
This is a personal blog about food, drink and travel – there are no guest posts/inserted scripts.
The format for any content will generally be:
- A review of a restaurant/cafe/etc.
- A blog post about a holiday, city break, hotel stay, spa breaks, bed and breakfast, excursions.
- A blog post detailing an event I have attended (food shows, street food, markets).
- A recipe
- A sampling of or launch of a new menu.
Blog posts are only written about positive experiences. Full feedback on my reasons for not writing a blog post is offered on those rare occasions where an experience has not been satisfactory.
I’m based near Glasgow but I am happy and willing to travel far and wide!
If the event is not in central Scotland, please consider transport/accommodation if I haven’t indicated that I will already be in the area of the event at that time.
Press Releases & Samples
I have no interest in/use for press releases.
I accept samples for showing on social media if I enjoy them, or if you wish I can include them in a recipe post. I do not write stand alone product reviews.
I rarely charge fees but when I have done, they are calculated based on the cost to me of writing the blog post.
